We are currently on a summer break. We recommend checking out #causeascene conf on the evening of June 3rd in Berlin:
"#causeascene Conf is an event without borders, which is designed to be safe space for members of underrepresented and marginalized communities in tech to tell their stories."
In this interdisciplinary meetup we want to explore stories at the intersections of technology. Technology is all around us and changing rapidly. It influences our social and private life, politics and society. Equally, technology is influenced by the people who build it and their mindsets and biases. Which challenges and opportunities do we see?
Sometimes it can feel overwhelming and stressful to survive in this field. Especially as a underrepresented and/or marginalized person. This meetup attempts to be a platform for exchange and support.
First we will get some input: 2 shorter talks of 10-15 minutes. After the talks we will have breakout sessions where attendees can discuss topics in smaller groups. Like an open space or an unconf.
Check out our past events.
Everybody who likes learning and will respect our code of conduct is invited to come.
We will be focussing on people who don't usually get the chance to speak:
women and non-binary people & black people and people of color & disabled people. We will be an intentional space but not exclusive - if you have an idea for a talk please send your proposal to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to create a space where people can meet and learn in a supportive environment.
Be respectful and open minded.
We will run the meetup under the Berlin Code of Conduct.
Gender neutral bathrooms.
The meetup is organized by Ophélie, Malwine and Princiya.
The whole project is work in progress and lives from your participation and feedback.
Questions and feedback is always welcome.
